NICHQ Vanderbilt Assessment Scales (Archived)
The NICHQ Vanderbilt Assessment Scales are used by health care professionals to help diagnose ADHD in children between the ages of 6- and 12-years. NICHQ is proud to have published the first edition in 2002 and has been at the forefront of supporting children and families affected by ADHD.
Since the first edition, there have been two subsequent editions: the 2nd Edition (2011) and 3rd Edition (2019). If the first edition is still valuable to your work, you are welcome to download it for free here. If you choose to reference the first edition in any publications, please include a reference to NICHQ.
NOTE: NICHQ is not able to receive or process any completed Vanderbilt assessments. Please consult with your pediatrician for an assessment.
